I couldn’t eat two pieces after I photographed this. One piece with a side salad was plenty for me, but my husband who has a bigger appetite found two pieces the perfect amount. For the side salad I just tossed romaine lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes with a little olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper – simple and delicious!

  1. Love this dish. Was wondering if I can make these ahead of time and freeze them? I want to take them on an RV camping trip. If so do I defrost them first or maybe cook them on a lower temperature for longer?

  2. Delicious and easy recipe. I roasted the red peppers first in the air fryer. My family of men loved it ! I will definitely make again.

  3. Can you bake this recipe instead of using the air fryer ?

  4. Would turkey bacon work instead of prosciutto?

  5. This was my send recipe in my new air fryer.  Delicious!  Not huge spinach fans so I substituted a few fresh basil leaves instead and worked out fine and tasty, I just say.  Thanks for sharing such yummy recipes. Loving my new air fryer. 

  6. Sorry I am new to this cooking thing. Do I roll the chicken in the olive oil lemon mixture and then roll it in the breadcrumbs? Or do I brush the Olive Oil lemon mixture on and sprinkle breadcrumbs on when they are already in the pan? Thanks for your help. 

  7. I made this tonight with a little variation.  I made with basil mixed in with the spinach and made it alla parmigiana. It was so delicious!
